Well they do, but it's in the form of sex-ed which has a lot of bad information.

We have an elective on the first, don't know how good it is. We covered the second splendidly last year in Introduction to Social Sciences.

As for the last one-I'd freak out if schools taught that. Thinking is not something to be taught. Of course, they shouldn't suppress it either, but a class "thinking" would only turn into yet another brainwashing session.

Ya I have this small book called The Art of Thinking that is used in a few universities. And it's really great. However, even the author occasionally says some things that come off as somewhat brainwashy and I questioned some of the things he said. But hey, the rest of the book showed me how to think critically so that I could question what he was saying. Giggle

School teaches all these things, I'll explain what kinds of stuff in those subjects they teach you:
- Personal Finance: Pay taxes.
- Basic macroeconomics: Pay more taxes.
- Understanding modern politics: You got me on that one.
- How to think: Just don't do it.

I feel like having books like these in a library paid for by taxes would be just fine enough. Forcing people is dumb, having it available is better, presenting it as an option is best.
